Now here is an odd piece of Fender history! Only made between 1989 and 1990 these USA Stratocasters were meant for export to Japan. These usually have I-serial number - and there is plenty of info online about these oddball guitars. Specs are quite similar to what Fender Japan was building at that time. 

 

Guitar comes in well-played condition with plenty of small dings and scratches on the body and neck, but no structural damage or wood modifications.

 

C-shape maple neck is really comfortable to play and frets have plenty of life left in them. Truss-rod is adjusted at the heel, like vintage style necks. Original tuners work smoothly. 

 

This Strat has received a full new wiring upgrade with the highest quality CTS USA A250K pots, Orange Drop capacitor for smooth treble roll off and reliable Oak USA 5-way switch that should last for many many years.

 

This instrument received a full professional setup with deep body cleaning, body polish, neck deep clean, full electronics check, truss-rod and action and intonation adjustment. Restringed with D'addario 10-46 Nickel-plated steel strings.

 

This guitar will be shipped around UK and EU with Parcelforce courier, safely packed into a sturdy guitar cardboard box. 24h courier service provided to UK customers. Worldwide shipping available as well.

  • DISCLAIMER

    Please note that although we put our heart and soul and also all our knowledge into every single guitar we sell, a setup is a personal preference. However, we try to get the best playability out of every guitar and set them up so you can play both rhythm and lead. We also pull them all apart to clean and check every single component and replace all unreliable parts with new ones, from dodgy pots to the whole wiring, tuners, string trees, nuts and etc. All the work done is described in detail in the listing.

    We make sure that every guitar we sell is problem free and take full responsibility for the accuracy of our listing descriptions. All photographs are done by a professional photographer and processed on a calibrated monitor. Some colours might look slightly different on your monitor, but we will always put the official Fender colour name in the listing description, so please study pictures of other guitars with the same colour if you are unsure. We focus on finding great quality guitars and making them reliable and inspiring to play.
